Pool Shark

Trouble, oh we got trouble,
With a capital "T"
That rhymes with "P"
And that stands for pool

My kids learned to play pool yesterday at the Snakepit in Kingston, Idaho. Look at that form! My daughter handles the cue like Minnesota Fats.

We went there for a lunch of buffalo burgers, Idaho nachos, and huckleberry milkshakes. Sorry, no takers on the Rocky Mountain Oysters. My son nearly lost his appetite when I explained what they were.

I don't blame your son. I've never had the stomach to try those either.

She's got a pool shark's hat too. I'm sure her first 'mark' will be Daddy. Watch your wallet.

Great picture. I love going to the Snake Pit. The owners, Joe and Rose Mary, are great!! I've never been brave enough to try the Rocky Mountain Oysters either. I'm usually an adventurous eater, but haven't quite managed to try those yet.

I imagine they must keep those Rocky Mountain Oysters in the freezer. Otherwise, they'd probably go bad waiting for someone to order them...

I bet your daughter could beat me in pool.

Maybe we could introduce your daughter to our grandson who's five. I have a photograph of him at age 3, bare butt shining (he'd just come from the pool sans swimsuit), standing in front of our one-armed bandit (we use it as a unique piggy bank for all our loose quarters). They could make quite a pair! (She's beautiful!)

Family Phil: If she ever begins to play regularly, I have a stick for her. Of course walking sticks don't work real well, but I have a pretty nice pool cue laying around gathering dust, she would always be welcome to it, like a walking stick in a way. The Stickman

I've been trying to get up the nerve to try the rocky mountain oysters. A woman sitting at the next table was scarfing down a plate of 'em last time I was there. I thought they'd be rounder.
